Birthing Gently Doula Circle

A Six Week Group Mentor Program For Birth Doulas

Because it takes a village.....


Congratulations! You completed the Birth Doula Workshop!

Now What?

Where to start? How to find clients?  Nervous about interviews?

What about contracts and refunds? How to connect with other birth professionals to establish yourself as a new birth Doula within your community? Nervous about meeting with your clients one-on-one during the prenatal period, not sure what you should be covering at the prenatal visits? Feeling like you need support throughout your first three births? Overwhelmed about interacting with hospital providers? We will HELP! Work with a designated Birthing Gently Doula mentor to increase your confidence and gain a deeper understanding of what goes into birth work.
